Overview

Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times says, "Laughter, tears, and the indomitable spirit - they're front and center as Jerry Perisho details his very personal war with prostate cancer." Jerry Perisho has been a CEO or senior officer with various southern California corporations since 1982. Additionally, he is a professional freelance comedy writer who created and operated a very successful joke writing business. When he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2004 at the age of 52, he discovered that his cockeyed view of the world and his sense of humor helped him survive the surgery, chemotherapy and two years of hormone therapy that were to follow. In fact, he flourished. This is his tender and hilarious story of the tears, the fears and the many funny things and amazing people he has encountered since cancer entered his personal world.

I don't have cancer, and noone in my close family has cancer. But I heard people talking about it and found it to be almost life-changing. It's more than a book about how to cope with cancer - it's about how to live a happy, healthy life, and it will actually teach you how to do so. This book has what every Chicken Soup for the Soul book lacks: truth. The off-the-wall hilarity is a bonus.

Excellent book for anyone traveling through adversity - illness or otherwise. Jerry's humanness and humor shine on every page and you come to love his compassionate (and quite funny) family, hate the Company With No Soul, and wonder at Mr. Stubby's resilience. Tremendous book, Jerry!!

I too am a cancer survivor. I so enjoyed Jerry's book one because it was not depressing of all the horrors you go through. I have been to support groups and walked away crying scared to death of what was coming. I was one of the lucky ones and so far am ok. If I had had this book,I would have looked at this 'disease' with a brighter outlook...we can all get through these things with a great attitude and a good book...thanks Jerry. I will be talking up this book to all my friends....

this book hit me at my core. i was laughing and i was crying. how jerry perisho can write so that one page i'm laughing so hard that i'm teary-eyed, and the next page is so heartbreaking that the tears are streaming down my face is amazing. as a cancer survivor, i felt like jerry was reading my thoughts, making them funny, and then writing them down. i wish i had read this book before it all started, but i am grateful to have read it now. for any cancer patient, survivor, or caregiver, THIS IS A MUST READ. for everyone else, THIS IS A MUST READ. it will change the way you think about yourself and the world.

I've read several books about coping with cancer and survival stories from celebrities and famous athletes alike. Jerry Perisho's book is a look at cancer through the eyes of an everyday Joe like you and I. Although he is professional comedy writer, his story is one you can relate to and benefit from. I wish I had been able to read this book when I was going through my own treatment years ago. THIS BOOK IS ONE THAT ANYONE DEALING WITH CANCER MUST READ. I laughed, I cried, I became very introspective...and I enjoyed every minute of his writing.
